Dear Beautiful - another love letter term 2 project

I can't believe I haven't posted for so long, but there's been a lot of travel and I haven't really been able to stay in one place long enough to perfect something to put up. I started so many things in the last few weeks but never properly finished any of them! There will definitely be more things posted in a few more weeks.

For our term 2 project we were supposed to redo a journal entry from term 1. That was really hard for me. I had some okay ideas but they never really worked out. In the end I had to fall back on an oldie but goodie - another love letter to a stranger. Well, I shouldn't really say "fall back" because it's more like fall forward, she was so inspiring for some reason. So here's my term 2 project, "Dear Beautiful"...

Society Versus Women

Whoa, I'm using a lot of caps in my titles these days. This is important too. It really touched me. This is such a shockingly eloquent portrayal of how women are still judged in society, even in the 21st century. All you need to do is look at the picture. You will understand.

These days we may feel as though women's rights are a problem of the past, if you just look around you - on the TV, to everyday conversations - you will see that there is still something seriously wrong with the way society views women. Women may have equality under the law - Canadians are relatively forward-thinking - but in society, there is no such equality.

Many prejudices against different groups exist in society today. It makes me wonder - when will people be truly free to express themselves and be who they are? be happy?

Being New School

Hi! You may have realized I actually use capital letters in the post title for once. Well, that's because this is a very important post.

Remember I mentioned making a video some time ago? Well I made it. And it could win me a full or partial scholarship to study music in New York, at Mannes the New School for Music! It's certainly far from perfect. I'm a musician and a writer, not a film director. And I did write the music and words myself. You can see them on the crumpled up paper. I apologize for my terrible handwriting.

Now you've seen it, I would really appreciate it if you would recommend me for this scholarship! Please go to the link below to leave a comment by Feb 10:

Yeah, I know I'm crazy to try and go into music. It's going to be tough. But I will be happy. So thanks for your help!
